Kidi, the reigning Artiste of the Year, has voiced dissatisfaction with the way his VGMA awards are related to his manager Richie’s position on the VGMA board.

At the just ended Vodafone Ghana Music Awards, Kidi has crowned Artiste of the Year.

At the event, he won five awards in total which include, Album/EP of the Year (Touch It), Best Reggae and Dancehall Song of the Year (Touch It), Best Afrobeat/Afropop Artiste of the Year and Most Popular Song of the Year (Touch It).

KiDi stated in an interview with Joy Fm shortly after the 23rd edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards that he feels saddened when some Ghanaians believe he and his label mates win awards at the VGMA due to Richie’s influence.

Richie’s influence on the board, according to the Lynx Entertainment signee, has no bearing on him winning the awards.

He said;

“Its crazy that after every VGMA night, when I go on social media I get messages like ‘Kidi and the others are winning because Richie is on the board.

That statements hurt me because it’s not true and it discredits my hard work as an artiste. What this statement means is that all my hard work doesn’t count because Richie is on the board. Sometimes I don’t even know who is on the board”,
